Cultural and International Political Economy, European Integration, Monetary and Financial Policy, Crisis Management, EU Politics, Discourse Analysis
I am an ESRC funded PhD research student at the Cultural Political Economy Research Centre (CPERC) of Lancaster University, working on European monetary and financial crisis management of the current economic and financial crisis. I am administrating the CPERC Reading Group and I am part of the ESRC Project The Great Transformation directed by my supervisor Bob Jessop.
My research interests cover a wide range of almost all aspects related to International and Comparative Political Economy and European Integration. Based on the theoretical framework of a so called "Neo-Gramscian Extension of the Regulation Approach", my work is highly influenced by the theories of Antonio Gramsci, Karl Polanyi, and Max Weber.
European Monetary and Financial Crisis Managament: Materiality and Discourse in Variegated EU Governance
In my PhD I am especially interested in the dynamics behind variegated European actor-specific interpretations of the current global financial crisis and the Euro-zone crisis, and how these interpretations structure the process of EU (Meta-) Governance and crisis management policies. Special attention is paid here to transnational actors and representatives and their impact on European meaning- and decision-making, ie. the transformation and/or maintenance of economic imaginaries and policy approaches on the EU level. Therefore, I am drawing on the wider agenda of the Cultural Political Economy Approach, which places the interplay of micro- and macro-structural dynamics in the process of reducing the complexity of social and political practices at the heart of my research and leads to my special interest in concepts and methods of Discourse Analysis.
